Messi and Mbappe combine for superb team-goal in PSG vs Auxerre

Lionel Messi produced a stunning pass in the build-up to Kylian Mbappe’s opener against Auxerre on Sunday afternoon.

Paris Saint-Germain fielded a strong XI for their final game before the World Cup.

Their trio of star attackers – Messi, Mbappe and Neymar – were all in the starting line-up.

And the two combined for a superb team goal to open the scoring in the 11th minute.

Nuno Mendes got the assist and Mbappe scored the goal, but it wouldn’t have been possible without Messi’s sublime pass in the build-up.

Auxerre were defending very deep but they were cut apart by the 35-year-old magician.

Messi spotted the run of Mendes and found himself with a lovely chipped ball.

Mendes then squared the ball to Mbappe who managed to find the net. View the goal below…

Marco Verratti, Neymar and Achraf Hakimi all went to Messi before celebrating with Mbappe.
